Celebrating.........Day number Three of Get It Down

Get It Down; 31 for 21


Art is a passion of mine. At the moment, photography is my window into my soul...a way of looking at the world around me and capturing what I see in an artistic way.

I grew up surrounded by Art. My father is an Artist...........actually a fine artist, a Master Art Restorer. He had a little art gallery in our town and most days after school I walked downtown to visit him and just sit in the gallery and take it all in.

Emma Sage loves art. She has started taking pictures and will sit for hours drawing.

This makes her Mommas heart sing, as I know she will always have an outlet for her creativity....a way of showing the world what she sees....a glimpse into her soul.

Today I celebrate another Artist.....a young man with Down syndrome named Michael Jurogue Johnson. If you have never seen his work, you must. Just click on the link which is his name. Also, if you are looking for that perfect gift, why not commission Michael to paint a picture for you. He loves animals and children.....a perfect mix.....and don't forget to check out his list of note cards for the Holidays or just plain old written correspondence!

Here are two pictures that Michael painted of Emma Sage. These are small versions that are made into magnets for my refrigerator. I have both paintings as note cards.

My father is an artist too. So's my wife. I'm surrounded by them :)

And your photography is always stunning - you have a very special talent there.

Beautiful and amazing. I found Jurgeson on the web in my eversearching for all people and things related to Down syndrome. The paintings are wonderful! Great post!
